During his well-documented Instagram rant on Sunday, Kanye West, whose tirade focused on Pete Davidson, unexpectedly brought the latter’s Saturday Night Live co-star Michael Che into the fold.

“@chethinks I’ll double whatever they paying you just so you don’t have to look at that pawn ever again big love,” Ye wrote, referring to Davidson. 

An hour later, Che took to Instagram to address Kanye’s remarks, posting a series of photos in which he responded to Ye’s offer with several messages written out on a legal pad. 

“Sorry Ye, but I would never betray my friends,” the SNL star joked, “for anything less than triple salary.”

Che continued, “That’s right, $90k per year!” before listing his requirements. “Full medical. Full dental. Four weeks vacay. Corner office. Plus, a pair of Red Octobers. Size 12.”

“And you gotta make some beats for my band ‘The Slap Butts,’” he added. “And you gotta tell me what you’re gonna wear to work the night before so we can look like twins. You do that for me, and I’ll Rambo that whole building.”
